First of all, we will quote the reports which mention the liars and "dajjals" who will precede the coming of the Dajjal, or Antichrist, who will be the last of them; may Allah curse them and punish them with Hell-fire. Jabir ibn Samurah said, "I heard the Prophet (S) say, 'Just before the Hour there will be many liars.'" Jabir said, "Be on your guard against them." (Muslim.) Jabir said, "I heard the Prophet (S) say, 'Just before the Hour there will be many liars; among them is the one in al-Yamamah, the 'Ansi in San'a', the one in Himyar, and the Dajjal. This will be the greatest fitnah.' " (Ahmad.) Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet (S) said, 'The Hour will not come . . . until nearly thirty "dajjals" (liars) appear, each one claiming to be a messenger from Allah.'" (Bukhari, Muslim.) Abu Hurayrah said, "The Prophet (S) said, 'The Hour will not come until thirty "dajjgals" appear, each of them claiming to be a messenger from Allah, wealth increases, tribulations appear and al- Harj increases.'" Someone asked, 'What is al-Harj?' He said, 'Killing, killing.' (Ahmad.)
